Summary (From the publisher):

When it was first published in 1899, The Awakening was charged with being sordid, immoral and repellent. Following such public condemnation the novel disappeared from bookshops and libraries for almost fifty years. Today, the story of Edna Pontellier's search for sexual and spiritual freedom is heralded as a classic. This volume includes other stories of Louisiana life which explore similar themes of love and marriage.
